Guilherme Samaia led Teo Martin Motorsport team-mate Lukas Dunner in the final day of Euroformula Open pre-season testing at Barcelona.

Samaia set the day’s fastest time during the second morning session, narrowly beating Dunner and Drivex School’s Franco Colapinto. In the afternoon it was then Dunner who set the pace, but could not usurp his team-mate’s earlier benchmark.

Friday pacesetter Teppei Natori looked like he was going to end the final session of the day on top, but the Carlin driver got bumped from first place by Dunner with just 40 seconds left on the clock.

Natori ended up fourth overall, directly ahead of team-mate Christian Hahn and significantly clear of both Nicolai Kjaergaard and Billy Monger in the other two Carlin cars.

Aldo Festante was sixth fastest for Teo Martin, narrowly beating RP Motorsport’s Javier Gonzalez. His team-mate Andreas Estner was 10th overall across the day, leading Drivex duo Marta Garcia and Rui Andrade, Campos Racing’s FIA Formula 3 driver Alessio Deledda, and the three CF Racing cars of Stefano Leaney, Stuart Wiltshire and Anthony Bishop.
